“Hi and hello! I’m Lexi, a silky soft ball of love looking for a human companion with a little bit of patience. I’m a fluffy girl who gets along well with others – people AND dogs! However, there are a few things about me that you should know: I’m slightly mobility challenged, so a home with few or no stairs is ideal. I’m also urine and fecal incontinent. Fortunately, my urine incontinence is managed through medication, so no worries there! Dealing with my fecal incontinence just requires diapers and/or an extra attentive human, but I would also most likely be okay if I had constant indoor/outdoor access (like a doggy door + a fenced-in yard)! I know this might make you hesitant to consider being my person, but I know my sweet face and winning personality will quickly nudge its way into your heart and you will find that I am worth the effort!”
By sponsoring one of our dogs living at the sanctuary you will help give them a comfortable retirement, provide medical care and food! You will be recognized on the sponsored dog’s page for your one year sponsorship. All of our dogs receive a thorough veterinary exam, blood work, possible teeth cleaning and extractions, vaccines, and microchips. Some of the dogs also need laser therapy for arthritis, chemotherapy, hip surgery and many other specialty services. With your sponsorship you can help provide quality vet care!
You are able to choose to sponsor food for 1 year for $500, medical care for 1 year for $1,000 or all expenses for 1 year for $2,500.
If the dog you are sponsoring passes away during your time of sponsorship your donation will be used to provide quality vet care to another senior dog in our program.

Hi Forever Foster Parent(s)!
Our primary goal at OFSDS is to find lifelong placements for senior dogs where they can live the remainder of their lives as a part of a family. Most of our Old Friends that you see at the Sanctuary are available through our forever foster program.
Through sponsorships, donations and grants we will provide medical care and basic needs to the dogs living in our foster homes.
Fostering for OFSDS is different than fostering for other rescues in that we hope that our fosters will be “forever” homes for the remainder of their Old Friend’s life. Although adoption is not expected, we will sometimes allow our fosters to adopt dogs from us, however, all adoptions must start as Foster Families. Foster homes must be within 100 miles of Mount Juliet, TN.
Because our main goal is to place senior and un-adoptable dogs in safe, lifetime placements, we do not charge any fees.
